205 cambelt tension

Post by jerry » 19 Nov 2002, 03:47

Hi i'm fitting a new cambelt after overhauling cylinder head on a 205 (1000cc)TU9 engine, can I set he tension by turning the belt through 90 degree's along it's longest stretch or do I have to use the fancy tool as described in the Haynes manual?
Thanking you in advance
Regards

hi,
thats the method Ive used with many a vehicle - these included - unless of course yours has the auto / spring tenioner , then you dont have to worry about it. Go for it!
